Secret garden

Happy Easter everyone!  

Yesterday a friend and I went over to the scrapbook store that is closing and then over to another stamp store.  The stamp store had a card using Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper and a they used the Spellbinders lovely floral oval die cut with gold metallic paper.  So I had to come home and make my own card using Graphic 45 paper too.  

I love Graphic 45 paper and I seem to hoard it instead of using it.  However, I have bought extra.  Even so I  cringied as I started to use it.  My card is 5 1/2 inch square card made from dark blue SU card stock from their current in-color line.  My next layer is gold metallic paper.  Then comes the Graphic 45 paper.   I then made a strip to go across the card and tied some pretty blue seam binding to it.  I added some blue rhinestones at the top right hand corner.  I used a Hero Arts sentiment in the both right hand corner. 

I'm making a few Mother's day cards.  I hope to be in a craft show on May 4th at a local elementary school.  I sent my application in last week.  Applications are due April 19th so I'm hoping they still have room for me.   I figure I'm going to concentrate on some Mother's day, teacher appreciation, and graduation cards for the sale.  I'll keep everyone posted to whether I'm accepted as a vendor.  

That's it for today.  Take care everyone and God bless!
